Many time I have to sew to the edge of the fabric, then back up (lock stitch)
This typically causes a problem and the material is no longer fully under the presser foot and not fully engaging the lower dogs (standard 60's home machine).
Is there a special machine that will reliably feed to the edge of the material, and back up??
Is there something I can add to a standard machine?
Would a walking foot machine solve this ?
I am guessing a "needle feed" would not be a problem ?
